First, the pluses: The apartments are on Shoal Bay West and you can walk out directly onto the beach. The staff is very friendly and the apartments are clean and well maintained. Beach chairs, towels and umbrellas are adequate.
Now, the minuses: When compared to comparable properties, this one is lacking in several areas. First, since most guests arrive in the late afternoon after a long flight, a starter basket of coffee, tea and breakfast snack should be provided. Guests shouldn't have to run to the store on the day that they arrive. Second, while soap is provided, shampoo should be provided also. Third, the apartments have concrete tables, nightstands and sofas (with cushions). The walls are white, stark and without decoration of any kind. This was not a big deal to me, but my spouse commented on it several times as did friends who visited us at the apartment. A couple of pictures on the walls would help a lot.
I recognize that overall, these minuses are small in relation to the pluses, but given the numerous options for upscale lodging on the island, management should address them to earn this property the EXCEPTIONAL rating that it otherwise would deserve.
